Salad Dressing

As usual, I always try to create salad recipes that you only need ONE dressing / marinade. A salad that uses one thing for two uses. This comes from years of making salads that require completely different marinades for your meat of choice, then drowning it in a completely different tasting dressing, only confusing my brain and taste buds even more. Why do that when you can create one delicious marinade and use it as a dressing? That kinds makes more sense.

How To Make Salmon Salad

This recipe is so simple, we can break it down in four easy steps:

  • Make dressing/marinade
  • Coat salmon in said dressing/marinade
  • Sear salmon
  • Mix all salad veggies together and top with salmon

What Goes In Salmon Salad

We used typical Mediterranean ingredients to make up the bulk of this salad:

  • Sliced cucumbers
  • Feta cheese — you could also use Goats cheese
  • Kalamata olives — or nay olives your prefer
  • Tomatoes

You can also add in sliced marinated artichokes, eggplant, sun dried tomatoes, or any other ingredients you have on hand!

The creamy avocado slices bring all of those ingredients together to create perfect harmony with the seared and crisp salmon pieces.
